"A Loss of Something Ever Felt I"
Random Poetry List VII
A loss of something ever felt I
The first that I could recollect
Bereft I wasof what I knew not
Too young that any should suspect
A Mourner walked among the children
I notwithstanding went about
As one bemoaning a Dominion
Itself the only Prince cast out
Elder, Today, a session wiser
And fainter, too, as Wiseness is
I find myself still softly searching
For my Delinquent Palaces
And a Suspicion, like a Finger
Touches my Forehead now and then
That I am looking oppositely
For the site of the Kingdom of Heaven
Emily Dickinson (American, 1830-1886)
